BUSH DEMOCRACY POLICIES HELPED BRING ISLAMIST DICTATORSHIPS TO GAZA AND LEBANON. IS EGYPT NEXT?
The Bush administration forced the Palestinian Authority to allow Hamas to participate in the electoral process. That was a big mistake. Hamas is not a political party. It is a terrorist army that has never hesitated to use its armed force to achieve its Islamist ends.
The same thing is happening in Lebanon. Hezbollah is not a political party, it is an armed insurrectionist gang of terrorists. To allow Hezbollah and Syria to seize control of the Lebanese government is a tragedy.
The same thing is happening in Egypt. Under the pretense of seeking more democracy, armed Islamist terrorists are moving towards a coup d'etat that will put them in control of the most populous Arab country.
Remember: it was the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood that spawned Zawahiri and the other masterminds of Al Qaeda.
